Workshop Information

Nat Cann is a Canadian artist of settler ancestry. Since graduating from Mount Allison University, Nat has enjoyed exhibiting work across Canada in public galleries, artist-run centers, and workshops dabbling in new media, assemblage, experimental printmaking and the typical Atlantic Canadian withering—nature reclaiming the settler’s notion of heritage. Such ideas have been explored from coast to coast via residencies and workshops in lands both fantastic and remote. Nat now resides in Saint John, New Brunswick, on the traditional lands of the Wolastoqiyik and Mi’kmaq Peoples where he currently instructs workshops in printmaking at the Saint John Arts Centre.
